Enjoy a bounty of late season blooms with the addition of Asters to your garden. Commonly called frost flower, starwort or Michaelmas Daisy, you can expect beautiful blooms long after the rest of your garden has gone to sleep with surprise blooms, on occasion, even after your first early frost. These esteemed garden treasures are native to the orient and produce star-shaped flowers in various heights and colors. Blooms vary from cushion, quill and peony shapes with a range of size from 2" to 4" inches. The darling of the Aster family is the coveted 'Duchess Peony Aster', a floral favorite among designers who use these stunning, late season, focal flowers in bouquets and arrangements. Asters grow in a wide range of soil types and do best in full sun.
